Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic relies on rotation in the Bundesliga game against Hertha BSC. Compared to Wednesday's 1-0 win against Chelsea in the Champions League, he made four changes to his starting line-up on Sunday. Captain Marco Reus, defenders Mats Hummels and Julian Ryerson, and striker Donyell Malen are new to the team. In the Bundesliga, Hummels last played against FC Augsburg at the start of the year for BVB.
"Today a few guys have the chance to show that they are still there, that they want to step on the gas," said Terzic on the DAZN streaming service about the changes in his starting eleven. "There were a few ailments, a few guys who didn't feel fresh. We have a great starting XI and we also have a strong bench."
According to Terzic, the 2: 3 of FC Bayern Munich at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday does not concern BVB. "Honestly, it only does us any good if we perform and win ourselves," said the 40-year-old. "We've put ourselves in a good position over the past few weeks, but we're not there yet."
Hertha coach Sandro Schwarz trusts the same eleven players who started the 4-1 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach last Sunday. From the start, Schwarz again does without attackers Dodi Lukebakio and Derry Scherhant, who each scored against Gladbach after coming on as a substitute. "We wanted Jessic and Flo on the pitch, their physical strength and playing against the ball," said Schwarz, referring to his storm duo Florian Niederlechner and Jessic Ngankam.
